I've never had this problem but I know there are lots of chemical in those there anything else that causes the same reaction for you? If so you might compare labels and see what they have in common, might help narrow it down for you.

Yes Im actually allergic to the smell of popping popcorn. Some how I can eat it but if I smell it popping my head just explodes with pain and it causes me to stop breathing. If you get the headache you are probably allergic to it. You need to go get tested for an allergy to corn and if you are take it to your boss and let them know.

P.s. burnt popcorn causes the symptoms to be even worse so be careful
